Description

Very rarely seen is this beautiful pure white form of the splendid Gentiana septemfida. The blue form is easy-to-grow and a good beginners plant, and so is this, and it will make an attractive and unusual bright splash on your rock garden as it is long-lived and very hardy indeed. Unfortunately it produces very few good fertile seeds.

Sowing Advice

Seeds can be sown at any time but are best sown in winter or early spring to benefit from a cold spell in the wet compost to break their dormancy. We advise covering seeds very thinly with sand or fine grit to about the depth of the seed size. If the seeds do not come up within 6 to 12 weeks the damp seed tray can be given cold treatment in a fridge for about four weeks. They may still take very many months to appear, so please never discard the pot or tray.
